Exhaust sounds sick! What video camera are you using and what video editing program? You did a great job putting it together.

I typically use Honda Spray Cleaner/Polish to clean my wheels, so in effect they are getting waxed. Never hurts to wax ANYTHING that has been painted - go for it.

Are you using DuPont Chain Wax for lube? That stuff is as mess-free as it gets.

BST Wheels??

Anyone used BST wheels on their Street Triple?? I had to retire my stock wheels yesterday. Trying to see if they are worth the $$$

Man, everyone says they use the Honda version of spray cleaner/polish. I'm starting to think there's something to it!

As for chain wax, I forget what I'm using. My friend had sprayed on a bunch of his, which is definitely what gunked up my wheels and everything. Mine is way more of a mess-free wax. I'll have to double check when I get home and clean/wax the chain. There's been too much riding this week sans-chain cleaning/waxing.

I thought I could make due with the OEM Daytona seat on my Rx conversion. Found out last weekend I couldn't. So, thanks to our fine friends at Riders Discount, I installed a Saddlemen Tech seat today.


I like the Tech over the other options because it doesn't have the ditch down the center. And it looks to be more cushy.

Why the steering damper? The Streets in your current configuration have virtually zero wobble.

I had just had speed wobble on two other bikes during normal riding so I want to make sure it doesn't happen again. Probably not needed but I like the piece of mind.

Yeah I did some research on them as well for my Striple and discovered that it wasn't needed (doesn't hurt though.) I have converted to clips-ons and a more aggressive riding position (rearsets as well) and have yet to have any wobbles on track or street but may get something custom rigged up by my mechanic for that same piece of mind!

Well my last wobble had nothing to do with the bike. I was merging onto the freeway making a right turn and slowly accelerating. Maybe 20 25 mph I hit a strange groove in the road and had instant tank slap. Almost high sided. Every since then I won't ride without some kind of stabilizer. Tires were good and I take that merge almost every day. Just hit the right factors to cause it. That was an 06 fz6. My other tank slap was on an 06 sv1000s
